|Solve → solver Z88|
|Introduced in version|
To use the Z88 solver, the OpenSource version of Z88 (Z88OS) needs to be installed:
- Download the ZIP file from the Z88OS website.
- Extract the ZIP to a folder of your choice.
- In the FEM preferences go to the Z88 tab and there set the path to the z88r binary. If you are on Windows this would be the path to the file z88r.exe that is in the subfolder ~\bin\win64 of the folder where your extracted the ZIP.
As a result you get an object called Z88_xxx_results (depending on the run simulation) in the Tree view. This is the same kind of result object one gets when running the CalculiX solver. Starting from this, you can visualize the results using Post Pipeline and Clip Filters.
See the Z88 preferences for the possible solver settings like the used solver method.
